The School of Engineering is one of four schools within Jönköping University. We offer attractive technical education at undergraduate and graduate levels and conduct advanced research in several technological areas. The School of Engineering is able to award doctorates in the area of industrial product realization. We collaborate with the surrounding society to develop new technology and spread knowledge to strengthen the competitiveness of companies. Working with us, you are close to colleagues in an international environment with great opportunities to influence and develop.
At the department of Computer Science and Informatics research is conducted in the field of computer science and informatics. The newly established Jönköping AI Lab (JAIL) consists of two full professors, three associate professors, assistant professors and affiliated PhD students and laboratory engineers. The main research area is applied artificial intelligence (AI) in collaboration with the surrounding society and industry. The focus is on theory and method from data mining, machine learning and semantic technologies. JAIL is currently the largest research group in the department and is developing and growing stronger.
The department offers education at undergraduate, graduate and research levels. The teaching is conducted through bachelor, master and engineering programmes that span from graphic design to software development and artificial intelligence. The research conducted in the department supports the educational programmes. There are approximately 30 staff at the department and about half of the staff have an earned Ph.D.
The department is now seeking a postdoc in computer science with a focus in machine learning. As a postdoc you will participate in the project Data Analysis for Knowledge Intensive Product Development (DATAKIND), financed by the Knowledge Foundation (KK-Stiftelsen), Jönköping University and two industry partners. Machine learning is used in knowledge-intensive product development both as an integrated part of the products and systems that are being developed as well as a supporting tool during development. Algorithms and methods need to be adapted to the specific needs of the industry, which can consist of e.g. customizations for real time- and distributed calculations, conformal prediction or to generate interpretable models. As a post doc you will work with the development and customization of methods and algorithms based on machine learning in close collaborations with the projects industry partners.
In the position of a post doc you will primarily (80%) conduct research and participate in research projects in the area of computer science. You will work with the development and customization of methods and algorithms based on machine learning in close collaboration with industry partners. You will also be an active participant in the development of the research area as well as the development of the departments new academic program and courses in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The position also consists of teaching, for example in the form of laboratory exercises and supervision of thesis work (20%).
The position as a post doc requires that you have a Ph.D. in computer science or related field. You will have good programming skills and possess proven knowledge and skills in at least one of the following areas: machine learning, data mining, artificial intelligence, as well as one of the following areas: real time and distributed computing, conformal prediction, generation of interpretable models.
It is meritorious if you have experience in participating in a research project in collaboration with industry. Knowledge of machine learning algorithms for real time- and distributed computing, conformal prediction and interpretable models is also of merit.
Due to the international working environment, a good level of the English language, both written and oral, is expected. It is meritorious if you also know Swedish. As a successful candidate you should also be driven and with a good ability for both collaboration and independent work.
This is a temporary position for two years and full-time, with a start date of July 2019, or as agreed upon. Working conditions are regulated in collective agreements and Jönköping University implements individual salary setting.
